INDIANAPOLIS – Crew Carwash, an Indiana based family business, is partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters for its 12th annual Crew for Kids fundraiser.
“For over 70 years, Crew Carwash has been giving back to our local communities because of all they have given to us,” Bill Dahm, CEO of Crew Carwash, said. “We are looking forward to once again partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters to support the children of Indiana.”
As part of its Crew for Kids fundraiser, Crew will be donating 50% of the proceeds from the Ultimate Wash to Big Brothers Big Sisters. The event will take place from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, July 24, at all 37 locations.
Funds raised will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies that serve markets in which Crew has locations. The agencies to receive the proceeds from this fundraiser include: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Lafayette, Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Central Indiana, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Wabash Valley and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bartholomew County.
“We look forward to our 12th Crew for Kids event with Big Brothers Big Sisters,” Sally Grant, executive vice president of Crew Carwash, said. “We are so happy to support their mission to create positive relationships through 1-to-1 mentoring and we’ve been able to see first-hand what an impact the organization has on the youth in our community.”
Last year, Crew raised more than $70,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters. In total, the company has raised nearly $1,000,000 for the nonprofit since its inaugural Crew for Kids fundraiser in 2010.
“This is absolutely one of our favorite days of the year, and it means so much to us to have so many Crew Carwash customers choose to support Big Brothers Big Sisters each year,” Darcey Palmer-Shultz, BBBSCI CEO, said. “The team at Crew Carwash goes above and beyond to help us ignite the potential of our community’s young people, and this event truly helps us reach more kids every single year.”
